Guest Post: Top Coats by datyorkLOVES

Today we have the incredibly talented and sweet Dahlia from datyorkLOVES!!! She's sharing with us her favorite topcoat and least favorite. Read on for why she loves one and hates the other :) 

Boy oh boy am I nervous! This is my first time posting as a guest on a blog. Before I get started I want to thank Lena for being a great host and I also want to thank and hope I don’t scare away you, Lena Loves Nails followers.

Hello! I’m Dahlia from datyorkLOVES! I’m a ball of nerves and excitement but enough of the small talk and let’s get into it. I’m going to jump into the good stufftop coats. I started blogging a little over a year ago but I’ve been doing my own nails for YEARS! Throughout the years I have made endless amounts of mistakes and with those mistakes I’ve given birth to many successes, one of them being a top coat. I have found my favorite and least favorite, both of which I will share with you today.

Pro FX
Quick Dry
High Gloss Top Coat
Seche Rapidement
(Can be found at WalMart!)

Why this is the ONLY top coat I use.
1. It dries fast and flattens all of your layers. This is HUGE if you do a lot of layering or nail art designs.
2. Perfect formulation!
3. It’s CHEAP, yes I said CHEAP! This 2.5 FL. OZ. bottle is under $5!! Ladies I don’t think it gets better than that.
One of the Cons of this polish is its size which doesn’t always allow it to fit in displays or stands, but that’s not THAT big of a deal, right?

Least Favorite
L.A. Colors Color Craze Nail Polish
Top Coat

Why this polish is going bye- bye!
1. Drying time iswell I’m not sure because it takes hours and even when you think it’s dry it’s not. For example when you put lotion on it will smear off your nail. I have noticed this happens in pool water, with soap, and salt water (beach). I am not sure why but I know why I won’t be using it anymore.
2. Sticky, unless you are looking for a polish that will stick to anything clothing, bedding, etc., this is probably one you should skip.

Have you tried either of them? What has your experience been?

Below you will find photos of the two.
Thanks again for reading and to Lena for hosting. I hope to interact with you and maybe even see you on my blog
datyorkLOVES or SassyNails.

Thanks so much Dahlia for sharing with us, I don't know about you guys but I want to try it out now! Make sure you pop over to her blog and Facebook and check her out :)
As always, thanks for stopping by :)


  1. Congrats on your first guest post! I haven't tried Seche Rapidement before but now you've got me interested! And I definitely won't go near the La Colors!

    1. Thanks and I would for sure stay away from LA Colorss top coat.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment :)
